May 2011

Our May Club Night was one of the busiest yet. I would like this opportunity to welcome the new members who have joined our club in recent months. 


There was a fine turn out on the competition tables. The competition results and gallery have been updated to feature some of the 40+ models on display.


Scale ModelWorld 2011 will be held on the weekend of 12th /13th November. IPMS(UK) have a new website dedicated to the show which can be found at www.smwshow.com This is a one-stop information point for everything to do with the show.

First I would like to apologize for the delay in updating the website. As you may have noticed I have been rebuilding the picture libraries which has proven to be a time consuming and troublesome job.


The diary is now up to date as are the competition results and gallery, featuring models show at our March club night

January 2011

January club night is always one of the highlights of the IPMS Farnborough year featuring the ‘Model of the Year’ contest. This year 30+ models were entered, representing the very best work of the club members across all scales and classes. As ever, the competition was close and keenly contested. After much debate members voted Brian Boot’s FIAT. Mephistofeles 1923 model of the year for 2010 - congratulations Brian!

In addition to ‘Model of the Year’, we held our regular competitions and the biannual ‘Members’ Trophy’ also won by Brian Boot. As winner Brian gets to choose the theme for the next contest, to be held in September, which will be: ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with G’.

Speaking of competitions, the club has agreed a change to the monthly competition rules. From February onwards if there is only one model entered in a class (such as the stunning truck and ship on the tables this month), that model will be declared the winner and so be eligible for entry into the ‘Model of the Year’.

Updated Diary and Competition Results. Photos of new models by Alan Purusram, Brian Boot, Jim Potts, Lewis Ragsdale-Lowe, Martin Humphrey, Mark Jowett, Mick Breckon and Ray Putman.
